“Her vocals mix the Southern sass of Shelby Lynne with the guts of Susan Tedeschi, leaving room for a fair amount of Bonnie Raitt-styled grit and gumption.” —American Songwriter
The Oxford American magazine is excited to welcome Bonnie Bishop to Little Rock! This is the fourth and final show in their 2017-18 Americana Series. Doors open at 6:00 PM, with dinner and drinks available for purchase at that time. The series is made possible in part by presenting sponsor Acura.
It’s only a matter of time until Hollywood snaps up the story of how singer-songwriter Bonnie Bishop connected with Dave Cobb, one of the hottest producers in the business, to unlock her inner soul singer and record the best album of her career: Ain’t Who I Was (Thirty Tigers/RED).
Even though Bishop can barely believe it herself, it’s a story that will need no dramatic embellishment, because every twist of fate — and faith — is absolutely true.
Before landing with Cobb—whose credits include Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, and Sturgill Simpson—Bishop had thrown in the towel on her country-leaning career, too frustrated, beat-up and broke to go on after thirteen years, five albums and one failed marriage. It landed on the rag pile despite monogramming by her idol, Bonnie Raitt, who recorded a Bishop/Big Al Anderson co-write on her comeback album, Slipstream. The song, “Not Cause I Wanted To,” topped the New York Times’s year-end best-of list. Then Slipstream won 2012’s Best Americana Album GRAMMY. Bishop also popped onto iTunes’ country chart in 2013 with a song delivered by Connie Britton, the star of ABC-TV’s hit series Nashville.
She’s thankful she recorded with Cobb when she did; his work is winning so many accolades, and he’s more in demand than ever.
If Bishop and Cobb should share an award someday, that’ll be icing for the movie. But with or without that scene, she knows the message she wants it to convey: Dreams do come true. As long as you keep believing.
“Dreams are lifetime visions,” Bishop says wisely. “And life is valleys and mountains. And if you can accept that, you’ll be fine.”
